Bonnie Zima, MD
Dr. Zima's research focuses on level of unmet need for mental health services among high-risk child populations with limited access to care (homeless, foster care, juvenile hall) as well as the quality of care for children served in publicly-funded primary and specialty mental health care settings. A current project involves developing and evaluating models of delivery of services for children and their families, and through dissemination of information to consumers, researchers, providers, and policymakers.
